It is about a love story that I would like to tell…
God creates man in His very own image. God desires the depth of His love to be revealed through ourselves as we love Him first with all our heart, mind, and soul. A marriage develops between God and man through a shared, devoted, relationship. God’s love is learned and known within our individual selves so that it will also be seen in the relationships we share with one another. As we accomplish our closest relationship, the marriage between man and woman, we can know the depths of the most intimate kind of love. Now that we know marriage, our own marriage resembles the committed relationship we have as individuals with God. Within that beauty, begins an understanding of what true love really is.
I sleep, but my heart is awake;
It is the voice of my beloved!
He knocks, saying,
“Open for me, my sister, my love,
My dove, my perfect one;
For my head is covered with dew,
My locks with the drops of the night.”
I have taken off my robe;
How can I put it on again?
I have washed my feet;
How can I defile them?
My beloved put his hand
By the latch of the door,
And my heart yearned for him.
I arose to open for my beloved,
And my hands dripped with myrrh,
My fingers with liquid myrrh,
On the handles of the lock.
Song of Songs 5:2-5
